I have mixed thoughts about Elfen Lied that are further complicated by the people that like that anime, but this anime seems to be one of the more popular ongoing ones. As of now it has a terrible score for its short episode length so I wonder if it's worth seeing.

Is this questioni really worth making topic, download first few episodes and try.
Still your max score after watching 200+ animes is 5, I don't think you should watch anime in general. I usually can't watch anime till the end if it's below 5, or I just don't understand something about your grading sistem?;

I don't know how 7.5 is a terrible score, but whatever. Plenty of sites are streaming it. Watch a bit and if it's not for you, drop it. Personally, I liked Elfen Lied quite a bit more, so... ;-)

7.5 = terrible. Never change mal, never change.

It's okay for what it is, there isn't really anything in it Elfen Lied hasn't done. Most of the high scores probably come from people who haven't seen Elfen Lied and think this is some amazing never before done concept.

So far there is really nothing here not worth watching but you'll probably end up watching it anyway then later posting about it int he Overrated/Underrated Anime thread.

When it's done airing I'll breeze through it and make a simple judgment.

It's way better than crap like Mahouka and Mekaku, both which are rated way too high ATM on MAL. It's also nothing like Elfen Lied.

What? Please elaborate how Mahouka's 7.9 is "way too high" compared to this show's 7.5? Also, who are you to criticize what anime deserves said rating?

Mmmmmk.
Just read my sentence back and it sounds weird...? I meant to say there is really nothing here worth watching.
I was typing it while half-asleep and somehow wrote 'not'.

I think everyone gets to say what rating each anime deserves. I mean, that's what ratings are for.

I don't disagree actually,

I believe it's ok to rate anything on your own accord, since ratings are subjective and are what you think the show deserves. Since everyone have different tastes, criticizing on the general rating of a show and the people that rate it high because you hate on it is just wrong.

Yes it's good. It has a low score because it's censored. If it wasn't censored, it would probably be 8.0+

With such compression rate to the original manga, silly fan services should really be cut. Other than that and JJ Abrams style censoring, it's worthwhile.

Overrated, imo. But since there's a considerably amount of people enjoying, maybe you should give it a try. Perhaps you'll like.
